Injunction - requesting/ defending

Domestic violence can be more prevalent during many family law situations such as a pending divorce or child custody disputes. Our dedicated team provides compassionate legal service during your time of need. We will walk you through your right to petition for a domestic violence injunction, often referred to as a restraining order.

The process begins when you file your petition for an injunction for protection against domestic violence with the clerk of the circuit court. This can be filed in the county in which you currently live, even if it’s been one day, the county in which your partner or ex-spouse lives, or the county in which the domestic violence occurred. A judge will review your petition and decide on a temporary injunction lasting 15 days or less. In order to obtain a long-term injunction, you will have to have a court hearing.

As a reminder if your partner or ex-spouse does not follow the court order, call the police to report the violation and ask for immediate assistance.

Stalking is one type of domestic violence that can be incredibly intimidating and leave you in constant fear. Stalking is described as when someone intentionally, maliciously, and repeatedly follows, harasses or cyberstalks another.

Harassment as defined by Florida law means to engage in a course of conduct which causes substantial emotional distress to another person and serves no legitimate purpose.

Cyberstalking means to engage in a course of conduct to communicate, words, images, or language by or through the use of electronic communication. Additionally, cyberstalking means to access or attempt access to online accounts of another person without their permission.

It is an unfortunate statistic, but domestic violence can be more prevalent during many family law situations such as a pending divorce or child custody disputes. The worst thing imaginable is child abuse and exposing children to domestic violence.

Much like an injunction or restraining order, a child protection order protects children from an abusive parent or their siblings. These orders can include other information such as visitation restrictions and rules regarding contact with the children.

As a reminder if your partner or ex-spouse does not follow the court order, call the police to report the violation and ask for immediate assistance.
